The Valley's orchards provide delicious fruits throughout the seasons, from juicy summer peaches to crisp fall apples. Stop by one of these farm stands for freshly picked fruit and beautiful views of rolling fields of trees. Please be sure to check each location's website or social media pages for details.

Mt. Airy Orchards: The orchard and farm store offer various produce, u-pick options, and kid-friendly attractions. Spring and summer are berry seasons -- pick your own strawberries, blueberries, red and black raspberries, and blackberries. Brighten your day with pick-your-own sunflowers during the summer season. During weekends in the fall, families can roam through a themed five-acre corn maze. Choose from over 25 varieties of apples and search through acres of pumpkins during your visit. Orchard tours on a tractor-pulled wagon can be booked in the summer and fall for a minimum of 10 people.

The Peters Orchards: The farm stand at the orchard sells fresh-picked, locally grown fruits and vegetables such as apples, peaches, pears, cherries, apricots, and more. Enjoy scenic views of northeastern Adams County, the largest producer of apples in Pennsylvania and nicknamed "Apple Capital USA." A pond and picnic tables across the road make this the perfect location for a picnic.

Boyer Nurseries & Orchards: Surrounded by acres of fruit trees and located in an original barn on the property, the fruit market features 20 varieties of apples from the orchard as well as other fresh fruits and vegetables in season. In June, you'll find pick-your-own cherries and blueberries. Peaches, plums, apricots, and nectarines are abundant in August. The garden center staff can provide you with all the information you need to start your own backyard orchard. As an added bonus, relax in their tasting room featuring scenic views of the orchard. Guests can enjoy locally-produced Jan Zell wines and hard apple ciders.

Hollabaugh Brothers Fruit Farm & Market: The year-round retail farm market sells a variety of home-grown fruits and produce -- from asparagus in the spring to strawberries in May, an abundance of veggies and fruits in the summer, and apples & pears in the fall. Visitors especially love the Bin Porch, where they can fill their own bag with mix-and-match varieties of fruits, including more than 20 varieties of apples in season, for one low price. The more you buy, the lower the price per pound you pay! The Bin Porch opens during peach season and stays open through apple season and into the winter as long as there are apples to sell. TIP: Be sure to check their website for current availability. Hollabaugh also hosts a number of family events and children's programs throughout the year, including their Strawberry, Blueberry, and Peach Festivals in the summer and their Apple Harvest Festival weekends in the fall.
